You metamorphose into a beetle-like entobian.
Benefit: You gain the following racial traits:
- +2 Constitution, +2 Strength, -2 Dexterity: Coleophites are strong and tough, but their thick exoskeletons make it difficult to move deftly.
- Chitinous Defense: When fighting defensively as a full-round action, a coleophite gains DR (X)/piercing, where (X) is equal to the coleophite’s Constitution modifier. This is in addition to the other benefits for fighting defensively.
- Natural Armor: Coleophites have a +2 racial bonus to natural armor.
- Flying: A coleophite can use the wings underneath its sheathed carapace to fly for a number of minutes per day equal to its character level, with a speed of 25 feet and poor maneuverability. This duration does not need to be consecutive, but it must be used in 1 minute increments. Fly becomes a class skill. Coleophites do not gain their racial natural armor bonus while flying with this ability.
